CHARLES & DOOSURGH ABAAGU FOUNDATION is a nongovernmental organization that believes in supporting through investing in the tomorrow of our young people by mentoring them through new ways of doing things through partnership with community, and other groups for the purpose of community development and self discovery projects. It was founded in Abuja Nigeria in 2012 to commemorate one year Remembrance of CHARLES ABAAGU and also immortalize the name of DOOSURGH ABAAGU.
CHARLES LUBEM ABAAGU was a student of social and community development, at the American University Yola, Nigeria and died on September 2011 in the hands of assassins, at the age of 28years.
Charles Lubem Abaagu during his life time loved working with youths and was sensitive to the less privileged in the society and wanted to assist by sharing and giving. He also desired that youth especially the girl child should grow up in the way of the Lord.
It is therefore in the desire and hope to continue with the dreams of Late Charles Lubem Abaagu that the Foundation was established to assist youths in our society in the areas of Education, Health and other related areas.
The Foundation was registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission, with Registration no. CAC/IT/No.52735. The Foundation is established with the aim of contributing its quota in assisting youth in accessing education and health facilities and by so doing empowering them.
